The Old City, the game we offhandedly referred to as Dishonored meets La Jetee, hits Kickstarter

You might remember The Old City as the game about walking and thinking and walking I wrote about a while back. Or more likely you remember it as the game with promo art of a beached whale that looked almost Fellini. But in any case a great many of you don’t remember it because the needle has barely budged on its Kickstarter campaign, which shoved off to a unceremonious launch earlier this week. But on the brighter side of things the game just got Greenlit, meaning that it will be available on Steam. We’re hoping that is a sign its fates are reversing, as an exploration game with philosophical underpinnings set in the sepia-stained Old World sounds ace.
